*NEW* Cricut You Are Here

Cricut You Are Here Collection

Today Close To My Heart released a brand *NEW* Cricut Collection.  Meet the Cricut You Are Here Collection.  Just like the previous exclusive CTMH Cricut Collections, this cartridge contains 700 images (so awesome, right?!?) Along with these images, you also get 3 coordinating stamp sets and a 20-pack of cardstock–so you can start cutting out images of course!

CTMH Cricut You Are Here Images

This collection contains so much more than what you might think by the name.  It does contain a lot of travel type images (National Parks, variety of vehicles, travel signs) but there are also holiday images (tree, pumpkin), sports (bowling, football, softball), everyday life (Polaroid, swimsuit, teacup) as well as sentiments and a font.

Cricut You Are Here Display Board

I’m offering FREE shipping for the next week when you purchase this *NEW* Cricut You Are Here Collection from me.  Be sure to purchase your collection from me by Tuesday, August 8th to get the FREE shipping.*  Visit my ONLINE CTMH STORE to select either a traditional collection with a physical cartridge or the digital version.

*Shipping will be reimbursed after your purchase is complete.

Storybook Alphabet Dream Card

July CTMH Stamp of the Month Storybook Alphabet

Close To My Heart’s July Stamp of the MonthStorybook Alphabet is a fun, whimsical alphabet set.  It’s perfect to stamp and leave as is, or to grab your markers, colored pencils or even watercolor paints and have fun coloring the letters in for maximum impact!

Storybook Alpha Dream Card

My card today was quick and easy to put together–the longest part was coloring in the letters with my ShinHan Markers!

Closeup of Storybook Alpha Dream Card

And here’s a trick for you if you’re out of 3-D Foam Tape, layer your paper.  I cut out my cloud image 4 times using the Little Dreamer Scrapbooking Thin Cuts cloud die.   I glued them together using Bonding Memories adhesive.  I sponged some Glacier ink around the edges with a sponge dauber for added dimension.  Finally, I took the Clear Shimmer Brush and covered the entire cloud for some fun shimmer and sparkle.

Here’s a complete listing of the supplies I used to create this card:

  • Storybook Alphabet Stamp Set (July Stamp of the Month) (S1707)
  • Memento Black Ink Pad (Z899)
  • Glacier Stamp Pad (Z2841)
  • Little Dreamer Paper Pack (X7219B)
  • Little Dreamer Coordinating Cardstock (X7219D)
  • White Daisy Cardstock (1385)
  • Black Cardstock (1386)
  • Little Dreamer Scrapbooking Stamp Set + Thin Cuts (Z3334)
  • Clear Sparkles (Z3274)
  • Sponge Daubers (Z726)
  • Bonding Memories (1512)
  • Clear Shimmer Brush (Z3293)
  • Golden Yellow ShinHan Marker (Z2452)
  • Turquoise Blue ShinHan Marker (Z2465)
  • Tender Pink ShinHan Marker (Z2464)
  • Leaf Green ShinHan Marker (Z2454)
  • Vivid Green ShinHan Marker (Z2466)
  • Peony Purple ShinHan Marker (Z2462)

Remember, you can get the Storybook Alphabet Stamp Set for only $5 with a $50 qualifying purchase.  That’s an amazing savings; regular retail price for the stamp set is $17.95.  The Stamp of the Month is only available during the month it debuts.  If you like it, get it now!  Come next Tuesday, August 1st, there will be a brand new Stamp of the Month to enjoy.

CTMH's Sea Glass Re-inker

Sea Glass is Close To My Heart’s Color of the Year–until August 1st, that is. Then a *NEW* Color of the Year will debut.  Right now, the Sea Glass reinker is on backorder until August 1st.

This means 2 things for you…1.) you have a little extra wiggle room for ordering yours since it’s not currently available and 2.) you need to grab it quick when August 1st comes around because officially it will be retiring so it will only be available while supplies last!

Don’t miss out on getting your Sea Glass re-inker!  You’ll want to ensure you can continue to re-ink your stamp pad, create custom puddle pads and more with this very popular color.  Be sure to visit my ONLINE CTMH STORE on August 1st to order your bottle.

Summer Twist Fold Gift Card Holder

Summer Twist Fold Gift Card Holder

Today’s card is one from our Spring Fling Event.  It’s a fun way to present a gift card. Plus, it has a fun look with the twist fold!

We used a couple of techniques with this card aside from the fun fold.  I took 3 sponge daubers to apply the ink to create the multi-colored beach umbrella.  Also, I added some beautiful shine and sparkle to the starfish images with our Gold Shimmer Brush (hard to tell in the photo!)  The Scallop Border (Scallop Punch is now retired) adds a nice feel of ocean waves to the pocket.  The other touch I added to the card that fits in nicely with a worn beach look is to distress the edges of some of the papers.  I used the blade of my scissors, but to be safer, you should use our Edge Distresser to achieve this look.  Plus, with so many blade edges on this tool, it’ll last you a long time! Perfect for distressing many, many projects =)

Inside Summer Twist Fold Gift Card Holder

I kept the look going on the inside of the card, which has another pocket perfect for a gift card, a little note card or both!
